the  heirs  male  of  the  said  Edward  Goodere,"  the  grantee.  It  is  presumed  that  the 
words  "  of  the  body  "  are  by  mistake  omitted  after  the  word  "  male "  in  both 
instances.  It  is  possible  that  as  John  was  the  2d  son,  his  elder  br.  (slain  in  a 
duel  v.p.  and  s.p.)  may  thus  have  been  postponed  to  him.

governor)  of  this  notorious  company  (founded  1702-03,  1  Anne),  is  given  in

maximum  (£1,000  for  every  £100),  but  before  Christmas  it  had  entirely  collapsed,

at    the    Coronation    of    George    I,    and,    having   entertained    that    King    and 

(*)  The  admittance,  however,  is  that  of  "  Chamberlayne  Beck,  of  Old  Fish 
Street,  London,  Gent.,"  whereas  he  was  a  Baronet  more  than  two  years  before. 
Presumably,  however,  the  "  Gent."  is  a  mistake,  as  the  Baronet  (whose  mother's 
name  was  Chamberlayne)  was  doubtless  the  only  Beck  (then  living)  who  had 
been  christened  "  Chamberlayne." 

(*>)  He  had  three  brothers,  Jacob,  George,  and  Frederick,  all  living  4  June  1741.

is  stated  that  he  wrote  his  name  as  "  Humfreys,"  and  the  name  is  so  spelled  in

C')  This  John  was  son  of  John  Dutry,  of  Thonnin,  in  the  province  of  Guienne 
in  France,  said  to  have  been  son  of  "  one  of  the  Prime  Ministers  at  the  Court  of 
Governante  of  the  Netherlands,  the  Dutchess  of  Parma,"  but  to  have  been  dis- 
inherited by  his  father  for  having  become  a  Protestant.     See  note  "  a  "  above. 

(>-■)  The  date,  1  July  1717,  is  assigned  to  the  Perrott  creation  in  "  the  list  of  all 
the  Baronets  from  their  first  institution,"  given  in  Kiniber's  Baronetage  [1771], 
presuming  the  grantee  there  called  "  Robert  Perrot,  of  Richmond,  Surrey,  Esq.  " 
(whose  Baronetcy  was  then  [1771]  "  claimed  by  Sir  Richard,  who  has  no  patent "), 
to  be  the  same  person  as  the  "  Sir  James  "  in  the  text.  This  date  of  1717  is 
copied  in  Courthope's  List  of  all  the  Baronetcies  of  England,  but  inasmuch  as 
the  date  of  1  July  1716,  is  that  of  the  precedency  granted  to  Sir  Richard  Perrott 
by  the  Royal  Warrant  of  3  Jan.  1767,  the  date  of  1717  is  presumably  an  error  for 
1716.  No  creation  of  a  Baronetcy  of  Perrot  under  either  date  is  to  be  found 
in  Wotton's  Baronetage  [1741]. 

(*)  Francis  is  apparently  meant  for  Thomas,  it  being  stated  (see  note  "  e  " 
below)  that  Sir  Thomas  Perrott,  who  m.  Dorothy,  d.  of  Walter  (Devereux),  Earl 
of  Essex,  and  who  d.  s.p.m.,  "  was  cr.  u,  Baronet,  29  June  1611,  but  died  before  his 
patent  was  made  out."  Not  only,  however,  is  there  no  warrant  for  such  creation, 
but  the  will  of  the  said  Sir  Thomas  Perrott  was  pr.  1594,  and  in  1595  his  relict 
was  the  wife  of  the  Earl  of  Northumberland,  more  than  fifteen  years  before  this 
alleged  creation.  .,„,,,      -o  r

No  locality  is  assigned  to  this  James,  neither  can  the  date  of  his  death 
or  any  other  particular  be  ascertained  abont  him.  It  is  probable  that  he 
is  meant  for  the  same  person(")  as  Robert  Perrot  mentioned  next  below. 


by  "  Mr.  T.  L."  [i.e.,  Thomas  Lowndes,  one  of  the  booksellers  whose  names 
appear  in  the  title  page  to  that  work],  which  purports  to  give  "a  short 
accouQt  of  Sir  Richard  and  his  family,  from  a  curious  pedigree  left  by  him 
in  the  hands  of  the  late  Mr.  Kiniber."  This  mendacious  account  of  the 
family  is,  for  the  most  part,  the  authority  for  the  statements  in  the  text,  as 
above.  The  earlier  portion  is  stated  to  be  based  on  a  pedigree  (deducing  the 
family  from  "  Brutus,  who  first  inherited  this  land,  which  after  him  was  called 
Britain  about  116  years  before  the  birth  of  Christ"),  which  purposes  to  be 
made  by  one  Owen  Griffiths,  who  was  wounded  in  Carew  Castle,  in  1650,  by 
the  side  of  his  master.  Sir  James  Perrott,  "  Marquis  of  Nerberth,"  etc.  There 
was,  however,  no  siege  of  Carew  Castle  in  1650  (which  indeed  had  surrendered 
in  1644),  neither  was  there  any  Marquess  of  Narbeth,  though  the  pedigree 
(which,  of  course  purports  to  have  been  compiled  at  some  date  after  1650)  is 
dedicated  to  him.  This  Sir  James  Perrott,  who  is  stated  in  one  part  of  this 
account  to  have  had  a  warrant  from  Charles  I  for  his  creation  as  "  Marquis 
of  Narbeth,  Earl  and  Viscount  Carew,  and  Baron  Perrott,"  and  to  have  been 
in  command  at  Carew  Castle  in  1650  is,  however,  stated  elsewhere  therein, 
to  have  died  in  1641,  though  (as  a  matter  of  fact)  his  will  was  pr.  as  early  as 
May  1637.  Thomas,  elsewhere  called  Francis  (who  d.  in  or  before  1594),  elder 
br.  of  this  James,  is  said  to  have  been  cr.  a  Baronet  in  1611,  though  that  date 
is  more  than  fifteen  years  after  his  death  (see  p.  33,  note  "d").  This  Sir  Thomas 
had  in  reality  but  owe  "  da.  and  sole  heir"  [Top.  and  Gen.  ii,  501],  Penelope, 
who  m.  (1)  Sir  Thomas  Gower,  and  (2)  Sir  Kobert  Naunton,  but  another  da.  is 
here  (falsely)  assigned  to  him,  viz.,  Dorothy,  who  is  alleged  to  have  m.  her  cousin, 
James  Perrott,  and  to  have  been  ancestress  of  the  (so  called)  Baronet  of  1767,  said, 
in  her  right,  to  quarter  the  arms  of  "  Devereux,  Earls  of  Essex."  The  said  James 
is  stated  to  be  s.  of  Thomas,  s.  of  Owen  Perrott  {d.  1597),  who  is  said  to 
have  been  a  yr.  br.  of  Sir  John  Perrott,  K.B.,  the  Lord  Deputy  of  Ireland 
(father  of  Sir  Thomas  Perrott,  the  alleged  Baronet  of  1611),  both  being  sons  of 
Sir  Thomas  Perrott,  of  Haroldston,  co.  Pembroke. — No  such  Owen  Perrott, 
however,  nor  any  such  Dorothy  ever  existed.  (See  B.  L.  Barnwell's  Notes  on  the 
Perrott  Family,  1867,  p.  62).  This  James  Perrott,  said  to  have  been  in  right  of 
his  mother,  "Lord  of  Wellington  under  Dinmer,  oo.  Hereford,"  is  stated  to 
have  had  three  sons,  by  this  apocryphal  Dorothy,  viz.  (1)  Sir  Herbert  Perrott 
[whose  will  was  pr.  Sep.  1683]  ;  (3)  James  Perrott,  who  d.  1683,  and  was  bw, 
at  Haverfordwest;  and  (2)  Francis  [called  a  few  lines  lower  "Thomas") 
Perrott,  of  Upper  Bignall  Hill,  who  is  stated  to  have  been  father  of  Richard, 
the  father  of  James  Perrott,  stated  therein  to  have  been  cr.  a  Baroi\et,  1  July 
1716,  and  of  Richard,  father  of  "  Sir  Richard  Perrot,  the  present  [1771]  Baronet." 
The  above  genealogy  is  thns  spoken  of  as  early  as  1811  in  Fenton's  weU-known 
Historicid  Tour  through  Pemhrokeshire,  "The  pedigree  this  charlatan  Baronet 
delivered  in,  is  a  most  curious  travesty  of  the  genuine  one  appertaining 
to  that  family  *  *  *  and  may  throw  some  light  on  the  history  of  a  man,  who 
blazed  on  the  town  about  thirty-five  years  ago,  and  practised  his  imposture  so 
successfully  that  there  exists  a  fiat  of  his  present  majesty,  dated  3  Jan.  1767 
*  »  *  for  his  taking  rank  and  title  from  1  July  1716."  T.  C.  Banks  (in  his 
Baronia  Angl.  Cone,  vol.  ii,  p.  1167)  speaks  (1)  of  this  warrant  as  "  declaratory  of 
honours  that  were  never  granted,"  and  (2)  of  the  pedigree  as  a  compilation  that 
"  one  would  imagine  was  rather  the  fruit  of  a  disordered  mind  than  the 
produce   of   a   serious   research   and   faithful    representation." 

(a)  This  view  is  adopted  in  Burke's  Baronetage  (1902),  but  there  is  no  such 
person  as  a  Robert  Perrott,  in  the  pedigree  supplied  by  Sir  Richard  to  Kimber  s 
Baronetage  [1771],  the  said  Richard  being  therein  stated  to  have  succeeded  Us 
uncle,  James  Perrott,  the  grantee  in  the  Baronetcy.

No  such  Eobert  Perrott,  however,  is  mentioned  in  Sir  Richard's  pedigree

Perrot,  was  created,  or  was  intended  to  be  created,  a  Baronet  iu  1716  or 
1717.  A  Royal  Warrant,  however,  dated  3  Jan.  1767,  was  obtained,(''.)  in 
which  it  is  stated  that  "  to  avoid  all  doubts  and  disputes  about  the  rank 
and  precedency  of  Sir  Richard  Perrott,  Baronet "  (whose  relationship, 
however,  to  any  former  Baronet  is  not  indicated),  the  place,  rank,  pre- 
cedency, etc.,  of  a  Baronet,  to  commence  from  1  July  1716,  are  granted  to 
him  and  the  heirs  male  of  his  body.  This  grant  of  the  precedency  of  a 
Baronetcy  of  1  July  1716,  made  by  a  Royal  Warrant,  dated  more  than 
fifty  years  later,  will  (though  more  properly  belonging  to  the  date  of 
the  said  warrant,  3  Jan.  1767)  be  dealt  with  (for  the  sake  of  convenience) 
under  the  date  of  1  July  1716.

{^)  Oent.  Mag.  for  1759.  In  that  publication  for  1769  is  the  death  in  Nov.  of 
"  Sir  Richard  Perrot,  DiMin."  This  last  person,  however,  is  not  styled  a  Baronet. 
It  is  to  be  observed,  however,  that  the  then  [1771]  Baronet  is  spoken  of  as 
"  Sir  Richard  Perrott,"  as  early  as  24  Oct.  1758  (see  p.  33,  note  "  c  "),  while  it  is 
stated  in  J.  6.  Nichols's  article  (see  note  "  c  "  below),  that  "  he  sue.  as  2d  Baronet 
in  1731." 

(c)  See  an  able  article  in  the  Her.  and  Gen.  (vol.  viii,  pp.  314-324  (by  its 
accomplished  editor,  John  Gough  Nichols,  F.S.A.,  a  most  acute  genealogist), 
entitled  "  Sir  Richard  Perrott,  a  soi-disant  Baronet."  The  words  used  therein, 
as  applied  to  the  Royal  warrant  of  3  Jan.  1767,  are,  that  it  was  "  surreptitiously 
obtained  " ;  and  the  grantee  is  styled  "  one  of  the  most  daring  pretenders  to 
title  and  pedigree  in  the  last  [i.e.,  the  eighteenth]  century."  The  matter  is 
fully  dealt  with  in  that  article,  and  the  proceedings  described  therein  appear 
to  justify  the   strong   language  used  above. 

(^)  According  to  the  Royal  warrant,  dated  3  Jan.  1767,  and  signed  "  H.  S. 
Conway,"  whereby  "to  avoid  all  doubts  and  disputes  about  the  rank  and 
precedency  of  our  trusty  and  well  beloved  subject  Sir  Richard  Perrott,  Baronet," 
it  is  declared  that  he  "  and  the  heirs  male  of  his  body  lawfully  begotten,  shall 
have  and  enjoy  in  all  places,  assemblies  and  meetings,  the  place,  rank,  pre- 
eminence, precedency,  privileges  and  immunities  of,  or  belonging  to  the  degree  of 
a  Baronet  of  this  our  Realm,  and  to  take  place  and  commence  as  from  1  July 
1716."  No  Royal  warrant,  it  is  believed,  ever  has  or  ever  can  create  a  hereditary 
dignity  (such  as  that  of  a  Baronetcy  or  Peerage),  and  though  such  warrant  can 
direct  letters  patent  of  creation  to  be  issued,  or  can  refer  to  any  such  patent 
that  had  previously  been  passed,  this  [most  extraordinary]  warrant  does 
neither.  The  effect  of  this  Royal  warrant  is,  apparently,  not  to  create  a  Baronetcy, 
but  to  give  to  its  recipient  and  "  the  heirs  male  of  his  body  "  the  style  and 
precedency  of  a  Baronet  of  the  creation  of  1  July  1716.  See  J.  G.  Nichols's 
article  (note  "  e"  above),  as  to  the  obtaining  of  this  document.  As  to  the  date 
of  1  July  1716  or  1  July  1717,  which  is  that  of  a  Baronetcy  alleged  to  have 
been  conferred  on  James  Perrot  and  Robert  Perrott,  respectively,  see  text,

da.  of  Isaac  Wyke,  of  Waoton,  co.  Herefor(i,(^)  was  b.  probably  in  or

his  uncle,  James  Perrot,  1  .Tuly  1716,  with  a  spec.  rem.  in  his  faTour.('') 
The  date  of  his  succession  to  this  alleged  Baronetcy  is  stated  to  have 
been  in  1731, (c)  but  a  notice  (Gent.  Mag.,  1759)  of  the  death  at  Brussels, 
29  May  1759,  of  a  "  Sir  Bohert  Peerot,  Bt.,"  coupled  with  an  alleged 
creation  (see  above)  on  1  July  1717  [not,  however,  1716],  as  a  Baronet, 
of  "Robert  Perrot,  of  Richmond,  Surrey,  Esq.,  now  claimed  by  Sir  Richard, 
who  has  no  patent "  (see  List  of  all  the  Baroiiets  in  Kiraber's  Baronetage 
[1771]),  rather  suggests  that  Robert{^)  (not  James)  was  the  uncle  he 
purported  to  succeed  and  that  1759  (not  1731)  was  the  date  of  such 
succession.  It  is  to  be  observed  that  there  is  no  reference  in  this 
warrant  to  any  Baronetcy  of  the  date  of  1  July  1716  having  ever  been 
granted,  nor  to  the  Christian  name  [Qy.  James  or  Robert?]  or  surname 
IQy.  Perrot  ?]  of  the  grantee,  but  the  date  is  that  of  the  Baronetcy 
alleged  by  the  grantee  of  the  warrant  of  1767  (*)  to  have  been  conferred 
on  his  uncle  "  Sir  James  Perrot,"  with  a  special  remainder  to  himself. 
This  Richard  Perrot  is  stated  to  have  been  "  of  a  military  genius  and 
in  service  in  East  India  before  he  was  14  years  old,"  and  to  have  received 
from  Frederick,  King  of  Prussia,  a  [most  extraordinary]  commission 
(called  in  J.  G.  Nichols's  article  [see  p.  35,  note  "  c  "]  a  "pretended  com- 
mission"), dated  24  Oct.  1758,  in  which  that  King  "confided  solely  to 
him  the  sole  care  of  his  intended  marine,"  with  instructions  to  destroy 
the  ships  of  the  Empress  Queen,  the  King  of  Sweden,  and  the  Grand 
Duke  of  Tuscany.  The  comment  added  thereto  is  that  "  A  Lord  High 
Admiral  of  Great  Britain  could  not  have  been  vested  with  more  extra- 
ordinary powers. "('■)  He  however  procured  a  Royal  warrant  (said  to 
have  been  "surreptitiously  obtained, "('^)  dated  3  Jan.  1767  (in  which  he 
is  styled  "Sir  Richard  Perrott,  IBaeonet"),  whereby,  to  avoid  all 
doubts  about  his  rank  or  precedency,  he  and  the  heirs  male  of  his 
body  are  granted  the   rank,  precedency,  privileges,  etc.,   of  a   Baronet, 


(")  In  the  pedigree  put  forth  by  him  (as  to  which  see  p.  33,  note  "  f"")  his 
mother  is  said  to  be  "  Rebecca,  da.  of  Isaac  Wyke,  of  Wacton  Court,  in  Hereford- 
shire, Esq.,  paternally  descended  from  Wyke,  a  Knight,  to  whom  William  the 
Conqueror  granted  divers  lands,"  etc.  No  description  or  place  of  residence  is 
given  to  his  father  (said  in  Burke's  Baronetage  for  1902  to  have  been  "of 
Broseley,  Salop"),  but  these  particulars  have  been  supplied  by  an  article  in  the 
Oeiit.  Mug.  for  Feb.  1770,  entitled  "  Particulars  of  the  noted  Perrot,  who  presented  the 
Fliiil  petition,"  where  it  is  stated  that  "The  pretended  Baronet  is  plain  D—k 
P — t,  the  second  son  of  one  P — t,  a  decayed  Distiller,  of  Mardol,  in  Shrewsbury ; 
his  elder  brother  an  Apothecary,  but  now  practices  as  a  Physician  at  Tewkesbury, 
by  virtue  of  a  diploma  from  Leyden." 

(*")  According  to  the  recipient's  account  (as  to  the  value  of  which  see  p.  33, 
note  "  e,"  circa  finem)  printed  in  Kimber's  Baronetage  [1771],  and,  apparently 
according  to  that  account  alone. 

(<:)  The  words  in  J.  G.  Nichols's  article  (see  p.  35,  note  "  r")  are,  "He 
succeeded,  we  are  told,  as  2d  Baronet  in  1731,"  but  it  does  not  appear  therein 
where  "we  are  told  "  of  this  fact. 

(^)  No  such  Robert,  however,  appears  in  the  pedigree  (see  note  "  o "  above), 
and  the  [marvellous]  commission  (printed  therewith)  signed  by  Frederick,  King 
of  Prussia,  and  dated  24  Oct.  1758,  speaks  of  him  [at  that  date]  as  "  S''  Richard 
Perrott."  Possibly,  however,  as  the  commission  is  in  French,  and  as  neither  the 
word  "  Chevalier"  nor  that  of  "  Baronet  "  is  used,  the  "  S""'  does  not  necessarily 
indicate  that  he  was  either.

8  Jan.  1770  from  "  the  Bailiffs,  Corporation  and  borough  of  Flint "  to  the 
young  Prince  of  Wales,  expressive  of  their  disapproval  of  petitions  for  the 
dissolution  of  ParliameutC)  ;  and  his  house  "  in  Gloucester  View,  Park

(probably  from  inadvertence)  nothing  is  said  therein  about  the  style  of  a  Baronet, 
but  possibly  the  style  of  "  Sir "  may  be  considered  as  included  among  the 
"  privileges"  belonging  to  that  degree.

"  To  the  initiated  in  Court  etiquette  this  statement  will  appear  scarcely  less 
ridiculous  than  the  appointment  to  be  Lord  High  Admiral  of  Prussia.  The 
privilege  of  the  tabouret  (or  to  be  seated  on  a  stool  in  the  Royal  presence)  was 
confined  to  the  Duchesses  of  Prance  and  the  wives  of  grandees  of  Spain,  and

was  his  travelling  title  there,"  and  that  "  in  1760  he  passed  at  Beverley,  in  York- 
shire, for  Admiral  to  his  Prussian  Majesty,  and  pretended  a  commission  to 
purchase  shipping  for  that  monarch,  but  Lord  Rockingham,  suspecting  the 
impostor,  obliged  him  to  decamp." 

(■1)  The  following  comments  thereon  occur  in  the  Historical  Chronicle  of  the 
Oent.  Mag.  for  Jan.  1770  : — "  The  concurring  accounts  that  are  published  in  the 
papers  of  an  infamous  adventurer  under  the  above  name  [i.e.  that  of  Sir  Richard 
Perrot,  Bart.}  involve  a  mystery  how  such  a  man  could  procure  an  address,  and 
what  means  he  could  make  use  of  to  obtain  countenance  at  Court  to  present  it."

(=)  Burke's  Baronetage  (1847),  as  quoted  in  J.  G.  Nichols's  article  (see 
p.  35,  note  "  c  "J,  but  the  date  of  death  is  omitted  in  later  editions,  e.g.,  those  of  1871

(' )  The  Baronetcy  appears  in  Burke's  Baronetage  of  1847  for,  apparently,  the 
first  time,  being  certainly  absent  in  that  of  1841.  It  is  not  in  Debrett's  Baronetage 
of  1819,  1824  or  1840,  nor  in  Playfair's  Baronetage  (1809),  nor  (as  an  existing 
creation)  in  Betham's  Baronetage  (1805),  but  in  that  work  it  is  given  in  the  list 
of  creations  (under  1767,  "with  precedency  from  1  July  1716"),  being  printed 
initalics  to  signify  that  it  was  then  extinct,  being,  presumably,  so  considered  after 
the  death  of  the  grantee  of  the  warrant  of  the  precedency  of  a  Baronetcy  of  1767.

Herefordshire,  and  Gloucestershire."  This  letter,  dated  26  Sep.  1725  [sic],  is 
written  in  the  third  person,  and  is  [1905]  among  the  Addit.  MSS.  [24,120,  fo.  301] 
in  the  British  Museum.  The  date  of  "  1727  "  as  ascribed  to  it  in  Wotton's 
Baronetage  [second  edition  1741]  means,  no  doubt,  that  the  information  was 
given  for  the  first  edition  of  that  work,  which  was  issued  in  1727.

1857  till  cr.  a  Peer  in  1868.  He  claimed  in  1841  the  Barony  of  Fitzwalter  {cr. 
1295),  and  proved  himself  heir  to  a  moiety  (and  probably  to  the  entirety)  thereof. 
The  abeyance  however  was  not  terminated  in  his  favour, (>*)  though  some  twenty-

Fowler,  of  Hackney,  Midx.,  by  Frances,  da.  and  coheir  of  Henry  Mildmay,  of 
Graces  aforesaid,  and  Mary,  his  wife,  sister  and  coheir  of  Benjamin  (Mildmay), 
Lord  Fitzwalter  (1295),  who  was  cr.,  in  1730,  Earl  Fitzwalter.  On  his  death,  s.p., 
29  Feb.  1756,  Fanny  Fowler  (afterwards  Lady  Bridges)  became  (in  right  of  her  said 
grandmother,  Frances  Mildmay)  one  of  the  three  coheirs  of  that  ancient  Barony.

(")  Presumably  this  was  done  at  Confirmation,  but  there  is  no  indication  as 
to  the  date,  which  was  probably  after  the  death  (9  July  1781)  of  his  elder  br. 
Brook.  There  is  a  curious  note  on  this  ecclesiastical  ■'  assumption  of  a  new 
christian  name"  in  Betham's  Baronetage  [1803],  which,  however,  in  Foster's 
Baronetage  is  stated  to  have  been  done  by  Act  of  Parliament.  An  instance  of 
change  of  baptismal  name  is  entered  in  the  parish  register  of  St.  Finn  Bai-r's 
Cathedral,  Cork,  under  21  Sep.  1761,  being  that  of  Lieut.  Robert  St.  George 
Caulfield,  93d  Foot,  then  presented  for  confirmation,  who  was  permitted  by  the 
Bishop  to  change  his  name  of  Robert  St.  George  to  that  of  William,  and  was 
confirmed  as  William. 

(*)  A  vulgar  proverb  says  that  "  Kissing  goes  by  favour,"  and  the  Whig 
Ministry  of  the  early  Victorian  period  were  scrupulously  careful  not  to  allow 
any  considerations  of  Equity  or  Desert  to  prevent  the  extension  of  this  sound 
maxim  to  the  domain  of  abeyances.  Sir  Brooke's  politics  were  Tory  and  this 
ensured  the  rejection  of  his  claim,  and  it  mattered  not  at  all  that  the  abeyance 
of  numerous  Baronies  (e.g.  Beaumont,  Braye,  Camoys,  Hastings,  etc.),  were,  at 
or  about  the  same  time  terminated,  these  being  in  favour  of  Whig  claimants 
(notwithstanding  the  fact  that  the  said  Baronies  had  been  for  centuries  unheard 
of  and  that  the  fortunate  claimants  in  most  cases  represented  a  very  small 
fraction  of  them),  while  in  this  case  the  Barony  of  Fitzwalter  had  continued 
uninterruptedly  from  1295  to  1756,  and  the  claimant  (who  in  all  probability 
was  heir  tg  the  entirety)  was  undoubtedly  the  representative  of  a  moiety  thereof.

(a)  Their  marriage,  27  March  1654,  is  thus  recorded  at  Stroud,  co.  Kent, 
"Thomas  Blunt,  of  Strood,  Shoemaker  (the  son  of  John  Blunt,  of  St.  Sepulchre's, 
London,  Upholder),  and  Isabella  Blacke,  of  Frindsbury  (da.  of  Thomas  Blacke, 
yeoman),  after  three  times  being  published."  This  entry  (interesting  as  illus- 
trative of  the  status  of  the  alleged  male  descendants  of  the  ancient  Counts  of 
Guisnes)  carries  the  grantee's  pedigree  as  far  back  as  to  his  grandfather,  whereas 
his  very  parentage  had  been  ignored  in  all  the  Baronetages  of  the  eighteenth  and 
of  the  nineteenth  century.  In  the  first  edition  [1727]  of  Wotton's  Baronetage,  he 
is  indeed  said  to  have  been  "  descended  from  the  ancient  family  of  the  Blunts 
in  Shropshire,"  but  these  words  are  omitted  (probably  not  without  a  good  reason) 
by  the  careful  editor  of  that  work  in  his  second  [1741]  edition.  In  Debrett's 
Baronetage  [1840]  it  is  said  that  "  this  family  is  supposed  to  be  descended  from 
a  junior  branch  of  the  Blounts  of  Sodington,  which  was  seated  at  Eye  and 
Stretton,  co.  Hereford,"  but  in  Burke's  Baronetage  of  1871,  the  father  of  the 
grantee  {viz.,  "  Thomas  Blunt,  of  Rochester,"  ignored  in  the  1841  edition),  appears, 
together  with  the  positive  statement  that  "  This  is  a  branch  of  the  ancient  and 
eminent  family  of  Blunt  or  Blount,"  called  (in  earlier  editions)  "  Le  Blount, 
descended  from  the  Earls  of  Guisnes."  Finally  in  Burke's  Baronetage  for  1902 
the  grantee's  father  is  said  to  have  been  "  Thomas  Blunt,  oi'  Blount,  of  Rochester, 
Kent,  and  formerly  of  ]Sye,  Herefordshire,"  but  as  we  now  find  that  this  Thomas 
Blunt  was  a  shoemaker  at  Stroud  or  Rochester  from  1654  till  his  death  in  1703, 
and  was  the  son  of  John  Blunt  of  St.  Sepulchre's,  London,  "  Upholder,"  there 
does  not  seem  much  probability  of  his  ever  having  figured  as  "  Thomas  Blount, 
of  Eye,"  CO.  Hereford.  There  is  indeed  a  conjectural  pedigree  among  Biglaud's 
MSS.,  preserved  in  the  College  of  Arms  [R.B.G.,  vol.  ii),  deducing  this  Thomas 
(the  Baptist  shoemaker)  from  the  well  known  (Roman  Catholic)  family  of 
Blount,  of  Bye,  co.  Hereford,  but  it  does  not  agree  with  the  pedigree  of  that 
family  in  the  Visit,  of  Herefordshire,  1634. 

(•>)  There  are  no  entries  of  births  or  baptisms  of  this  family  at  St.  Nicholas', 
Rochester,  prior  to  that  of  24  July  1665,  the  births  of  the  three  elder  children 
(Thomas,  Elizabeth,  and  Joane,  30  March  1655,  21  Feb.  1657,  and  25  Oct.  1660), 
being  entered  among  the  baptisms  of  Stroud. 

(c)  See  p.  10,  note  "  o,"  under  "  Lambert  "  Baronetcy  [1711]  for  a  notice  of 
this  Company. 

{^)  "  The  public  indignation  was  pointed  chiefiy  against  Sir  John  Blunt,  as 
Projector,  and  against  [the  Earl  of]  Sunderland  and  Aislabie  as  heads  of  the 
Treasury  .  .  The  character  of  Blunt  himself  was  that  of  a  dishonest  and 
now  ruined  man."     [Stanhope's  England,  as  on  p.  10,  note  "  o."] 

(")  He  appealed  therefrom,  and  a  day  was  appointed  for  the  hearing,  but  no 
further  proceedings  took  place,  possibly  on  account  of  his  death,  a  few  months 
later,  in  Jan.  1732/3.

(c)  This  is  the  Lord  Mayor,  whose  death  (17  March  1688/9,  aged  55)  was 
(according  to  Maoaulay's  Mngland)  caused  by  "  fits "  brought  on  through  the 
state  of  mind  caused  by  the  appearance  before  him,  in  the  previous  December, 
of  the  notorious  Lord  Chancellor  Jeffreys,  who  had  been  "  dragged  into  the 
Justice  room  followed  by  a  raging  multitude  "  after  his  capture  at  Wapping. 
This  seems  improbable,  and  does  not  agree  with  the  high  character  given  to  him 
by  "the  famous  Dr.  Scott,  Rector  of  St.  Giles'-in-the-Fields,"  printed  in

18;  sue.  to  the  Baronetcy,  11  March  1792,  but  to  none  of  the  principal  estates 
which  were  left  by  his  father(")  to  his  [the  said  father's]  nephew,  Christopher 
Codrington,  afterwards  Bethell-Codeington,  as  is  mentioned  below.  This 
Christopher,  however,  allowed  him  an  annuity  of  £2,000  during  his  life.  He,  who 
appears  to  have  residfid  chiefly  in  Brittany,  in  France,  m.(^)  Mary,  da.  of  ( — ) 
KiEKE.  She,  who  was  b.  about  1732  in  Derby,  d.  s.p.  20  April  1789,  aged  57,  in 
the  Place  de  la  Liberie,  at  Dinan,  in  Brittany.     He  vi.  subsequently, (c)  in  or 

(^)  His  being  thus  disinherited  (whatever  was  its  cause)  was  not  from  any 
question  of  his  legitimacy.  There  is  a  deed  executed  by  the  2d  Baronet 
10  March  1769,  in  which  he  settles  some  estate  on  this  son,  William,  by  the 
description  of  his  "  only  son  and  heir  apparent,"  which  description  is  again 
applied  to  him  on  a  bond,  dat.  20  May  1776,  for  raising  £1,000.  [See  report  of 
3  Oct.  1827,  as  in  note  (— )  below]. 

C")  It  is  possible  that  besides  the  two  wives  mentiened  in  the  text,  he  m.,  as  a 
1st  wife,  "  in  July  1776,  Mary,  da.  of  the  late  Hon.  William  Ward,"  which  lady 
is  the  only  wife  assigned  to  him  in  Playfair's  Baronetage  [1811]. 

(")  On  the  legality  of  this  last  marriage  the  question  of  the  legitimacy  of 
the  4th  Baronet  depends.  The  only  point  that  tells  against  this  legitimacy  seems 
to  be  a  letter  from  the  Baronet,  in  1812,  announcing  his  marriage  and  the  birth 
of  children  to  his  cousin,  Christopher  Bethell-Codrington,  the  giver  of  the 
£2,000  annuity,  in  which  he  writes  that  as  he  '*  had  been  married  before  the 
Church  and  not  before  the  municipality,  such  marriage,  not  having  been 
according  to  the  laws  of  France,  could  not  be  looked  upon  as  valid  in  England." 
This  depreciation  of  the  validity  of  his  marriage  was  presumably  made  from 
fear  of  losing  the  [liberal]  annuity  assigned  to  him,  if  he  offended  one  whom  he 
probably  had  led  to  suppose  would  inherit  the  Baronetcy  at  his  death.  The 
validity  of  the  marriage  and  the  consequent  legitimacy  of  the  issue  is,  however, 
strongly  supported,  on  the  other  hand,  as  below.  There  are  attested  copies 
(1)  Of  the  death,  20  April  1789,  at  Dinan,  of  "  Mary  Kirke,  aged  57,  wife  of 
William  Codrington "  j  (2)  Of  a  deposition  that  there  was  no  issue  of  such 
marriage;  (3)  Of  the  registration  at  Rennes  by  William  Codrington,  then 
aged  69,  of  a  male  infant,  born,  25  Jan.  1806,  to  him  and  Eleanor  Kirke,  his 
wife,  which  received  the  name  of  William  Raimond ;  (4)  Of  the  death  at 
Kennes,  13  Feb.  1816,  of  Dame  Eleanor  Kirke,  aged  42^,  native  of  London 
(da.  of  Godfrey  Kirke  and  Marie  Holland),  wife  of  William  Codrington,  an 
English  Baronet ;  (5)  The  legitimacy  of  the  said  William  Raimond  Codrington 
was  allowed  at  the  Probate  Court,  and  succession  duty  of  one  per  cent,  (not  ten 
per  cent,  as  in  the  case  of  a  bastard)  was  paid.  From  enquiries  made  at  Paris 
in  1827,  it  was  ascertained  that  the  marriage  with  a  deceased  wife's  niece  was 
valid  there  (as  in  England)  if  not  set  aside  in  the  lifetime  of  the  parties.  [See 
report  of  C.  G.  Young,  York  Herald  (afterwards  "Garter"),  and  G.  P.  Beltz, 
Lancaster  Herald,  to  the  College  of  Arms,  27  Oct.  1827,  previous  to  the  entering

(c)  In  Betham's  Baronetage  [1803],  after  stating  that  the  2d  Baronet  had  issue 
by  his  1st  wife,  it  is  added  that  by  his  2d  wife,  Philadelphia  Gery,  "  m.  19  Aug. 
1772,  he  had  issue  Sir  George,  his  successor;  Philadelphia,  wife  of  Capt.  Charles

"  was  succeeded  by  his  son.  Sir  George  Vandeput,  the  present  Baronet."

For  above  a  century  (1783-1895)  this  Baronetcy  was  con- 
sidered extinct,  although  if  the  pedigree  set  forth  below  be  correct,  an 
uncle  of  the  last  Baronet  was  living  in  Oxfordshire  in  1783,  as  also  seven 
years  later  (with  a  large  family  of  sons)  but,  though  a  son  of  the  grantee, 
never  assumed  the  title  that  had  been  granted  to  his  father.

with  John  Charles  Mitchell,  of  Great  Tew,  Oxon  [1750-76],  and  after- 
wards of  South  Weston  and  Tetsworth,  in  that  county,  and  consequently 
to  be  uncle  and  h.  male  of  the  last  Baronet,  and  as  such  entitled  to  succeed

as  4th  Baronet.  This  Andrew,  b.  30  Sep.  and  hap.  7  Oct.  1736,  at  Tingwall,  was 
an  Advocate  in  1765,  and  d.  unm.  at  Rome  of  a  fever,  in  Dec.  1780,  before  his

(<^)  According  to  a  pedigree  (privately  printed  20  Nov.  1878),  compiled  by 
James  William  Mitchell,  Rothesay  Herald,  in  which  his  descent  is  shewn  from 
the  grantee,  and  his  right,  consequently,  to  the  title  of  Baronet.  In  this  pedigree 
the  first  three  (actual)  Baronets  as  also  those  entitled  to  that  dignity  (he  himself 
being  the  ninth)  are  printed  in  black  letter,  but  the  prefix  "Sir"  and  the

the  information  about  the  family  to  Wotton's  Baronetage  [1741],  where,  too, 
the  death  is  recorded,  in  1740,  of  his  sou  Magnus  Wyche.  [The  account  in 
Kimber's  Baronetage,  though  dated  as  late  as  1771,  being  merely  an  exact  reprint  of 
the  above,  may  be  passed  over.]  The  death,  however,  is  recorded  in  the  Gent. 
Mag.  of  1739  of  "  Sir  Cecil  Wyche,  Bart.,  Minister  to  Circle  of  Lower  Saxony,  in 
Holstein,"  on  30  April  1739,  which,  presumably  (though  a  very  accurate  descrip- 
tion of  the  grantee)  is,  as  to  the  date,  an  error. 

(•>)  The  name  of  Cyril  was  first  given  to  the  grantee's  great  uncle.  Sir  Cyril 
Wyche,  sometime  (1693-95)  one  of  the  Lords  Justices  (Chief  Governors)  of  Ireland, 
who  was  b.  at  Constantinople  (where  his  father.  Sir  Peter  Wyche,  was  Ambassador) 
about  1635,  his  godfather  being  "  Cyril,"  the  well-known  Patriarch  of  that  city. 
He  purchased  an  estate  at  Hookwold,  in  Norfolk,  and  d.  29  Dec.  1707,  leaving 
issue.     His  widow  d.  11  Dec.  1723.

had  nothing  to  do.

wall,  planted  many  forest  trees,  and  built  the  great  bridge,  which  there  spans  the 
Tees.     "  He  practically  made  the  Roheby,  of  which  Sir  Walter  Scott  wrote,  and 
which  the  tourist  visits."     [Diet.  Nat.  Biogr.].

forcing  his  acquaintance  on  every  great  man.  (See  N.  8c  Q.,  1st  S.,  x,  164  and 
294).  He  was  unusually  tall  and  thin,  being  generally  known  as  "Long  Sir 
Thomas,"  in  allusion  to  which  nickname  and  to  his  lack  of  humour  Lord 
Chesterfield  wrote —

said  son's  father-in-law  of  defrauding  him  of  a  lead  mine  discovered  on  his  [late] 
wife's  property,  and  yielding  an  average  of  £22,000  a  year.  This  mine  is  said  in 
the  course  of  twenty  years  to  have  yielded  at  least  £360,000.  Her  fortune

cr.  31  Oct.  1737; 

ex.  31   Jan.   1801  ; 

but  assumed  (by  two  parties)  since  that  date. 

I.  1737.  Sir  Chaules  Payne,  of  St.  Christopher's,  in  the  West 

Indies,  Knt.,  2d  s.  of  (apparently)  Abraham  (sometime  called 
Ralph)  Payne,  of  the  same,(a)  was  i.  in  that  island,  in  which  he  afterwards 
became  a  planter,  and  having  obtained  a  considerable  estate  therein  by  grant 
from  William  III,  was  Major-General  of  the  Leeward  Islands ;  Knighted  13  Oct. 
1728,  and  was  cr.  a  Baronet,  as  above,  31  Oct.  1737.  He  rn.,  probably  about 
1720,  Janet,  sister  and  coheir  of  Gillies  Mac  Arthur,  da.  of  Major  John

to  pher's   aforesaid,   2d   but    1st   surv.   s.  and  h.   male,(b)   t.   there 

1 801 .  14  Dec.  1720,  was  one  of  seven  brothers  who  were  "  ed.  at  Hackney 
under  Mr.  Newcome  "C^) ;  sue.  to  the  Baronetcy,  Dec.  1738.  He, 
about  1770,  purchased  the  estate  of  Tempsford,  Beds ;  was  Sheriff  of  that  county 
1772-73,  and  Lieut.-Col.  of  the  Beds  militia.  He  m.,  probably  in  1771,(<i)  Maria, 
da.  of  John  Keeling,  of  Pottons,  Beds,  by  which  lady  he  had  had  twelve  children 
born  before  wedlock,  between  1754  and  1768.  He  d.  s.p.  legit.  31  Jan.  ISOl,^) 
aged  80,  when  the  Baronetcy  became  extinct.  Will  pr.  1801.  His  widow  d. 
18  May  1802,  at  Tempsford  Hall.     Wfll  pr.  1 TO4. 


The  Baronetcy  was,  however,  assumed  as  below  : — 

///.  1801.  Sib  John  Payne,  Baronet  [1737], (f),  of  Temps- 
ford aforesaid,  eldest  of  the  illegit.  sons  of  the  late  Baronet 
by  Maria  Keeling  abovenamed,  6.  about  1754 ;  sue.  to  the  BaronetcyiJ)  (as 
also  to  the  family  estate),  31  Jan.  1801,  his  right  thereto  being  never  dis- 
puted by  his  younger  brother,  Peter  Payne,  below  mentioned.  He  m.  iu 
1792,  Mary,  2d  da.  of  Sir  Philip  MoNonx,  5th  Baronet  [1660],  by  Elizabeth, 
da.  of  Ambrose  Riddell,  of  Eversholt,  Beds.  He  d.  25  May  1803,  suddenly, 
at  the  Swan  Hotel,  Bedford.  Will  pr.  1804.  His  widow  m.  20  Jan.  1811, 
Joseph  Francis  Buckworth,  Lieut.-Col.  Cheshire  militia  (living  1841), 
whom  she  survived,  and  d.  22  March  1850  at  Sandy  Place,  Beds.,  aged  84. 
Will  pr.  May  1850. 


(a)  His  elder  br.,  Abraham  Payne,  was  grandfather  of  Sir  Ralph  Payne,  K.B., 
cr.  1  Oct.  1795  Baron  Lavington  [I.],  and  of  William  Payne,  afterwards  Payne- 
Gallwey,  cr.  a  Baronet,  8  Dec.  1812. 

(ii)  Abraham  Payne,  the  1st  son,  m.  before  1741,  a  da.  of  Jeffrey  Brown,  Chief 
Justice  of  St.  Christopher's,  and  d.  v. p.  and  s.p.m. 

(c)  Betham's  Bm-oweiasre  [1803]. 

('')  He  applied  for  a  special  license  for  marriage,  25  April  1771  [the  date  of 
9  Feb.  1771  is  erased]  making  oath  that  he  was  above  40  and  a  Bachelor 
and  that  "  Maria  Keeling"  was  above  30  and  a  Spinster,  both  being  of  Boxton, 
near  Tempsford,  Beds.  There  is,  however,  "  no  evidence  of  the  marriage  having 
taken  plaice"  [note  to  a  MS.  pedigree  of  this  family  in  Bulman's  Collections, 
"  J.P.  81,  fo.  405,"  in  the  College  of  Arms].  The  date  of  1754  is  assigned  to  this 
marriage  in  Playfair's  Baronetage  [1811]  and  that  of  1761  in  more  modern 
Baronetages  [e.jr.,  that  of  Burke  in  1841],  this  last  date  being  apparently  assumed 
from  the  Chancery  decree  in  which  Peter  Payne  (born  Feb.  1762)  was  said  to 
have  been  the  first  legitimate  child. 

{")  In  the  Annual  Beg.  for  1771,  under  the  date  of  "  16  Oct.  1771,"  the  death 
is  recorded  of  "  Sir  Giles  Payne,  Knt.,"  as  having  occurred  "  lately  at  St.  Kitts." 
This  is  presumably  a  mistake  for  Sir  Gillies  Payne,  Baronet,  whose  death,  however, 
did  not  occur  till  "  31  Jan.  1801,  aged  80,"  as  is  recorded  in  the  vol.  of  that  work 
for  the  year  1801.

sons  of  the  2d  Baronet,  b.  Feb.  and  bap.  17  March  1762,  at  Eoxton,  Beds,

the  Masters  of  the  Court  of  Chancery,  to  be  the  eldest  son  bom  in  wedlock 
of  his  father  (whose  marriage  is  therein  stated  to  have  been  "  about 
1761  "),  and,  accordingly,  assumed  the  Baronetcy ;  this  finding,  however, 
was  reversed  a  few  months  later,  in  Jan.  1829,  and  the  question  of  his 
legitimacy,  as  also  of  that  of  John,  his  elder  brother,  was  directed  to  be 
tried,  though  such  trial  never  took  place.  He  was  M.P.  for  Beds  (in  the

Q>)  It  appears  that  the  certificate  of  his  baptiswi  was  produced  before  the 
Masler  in  Chancery  who  gave  the  decree  in  1828  as  to  his  legitimacy,  and  that 
the  statement  therein  that  he  was  a  "  natural  son  "  was  got  over  by  the  ludicrous 
argument  that  the  marriage  of  the  child's  parents  had  been  so  private  as  to  be 
unknown  to  the  minister  of  his  parish,  who,  being  accustomed  to  enter  all  the 
children  of  Sir  Gillies  Payne  as  bastards,  entered,  in  error,  this  one  alao  as  such, 
without  any  question  to  the  parents  or  any  supervision  on  their  part.  Five  suSh 
children  (1757-61)  had  been  previously  entered  as  "  natural."

(b)  Such  is  the  extraordinary  way  in  which  the  Gazette  notice  ("  Whitehall, 
Deo.  17"  [1900])  declares  the  title,  though  it  is  impossible  to  deduce  therefrom 
whether  the  designation  "  of  Blagdon  and  Blyth  "  applies  to  the  Viscountoy  as 
well  as  to  the  Barony,  or  to  the  Barony  only.

BLAKISTON,  or  BLACKISTON  : 
cr.  22  April  1763. 
I.     1763.  "  Sir  Matthew  Blackiston  [,s'?'c,  but  Qy.  Blakiston], 

Knt.,"(<:)  Alderman  of  London,  s.  of  George  Blakiston,  of 
London,  by  ( — ),  da.  of  Matthew  Hale,  also  of  Loudon,  was  b.  about  1702;  was 
Citizen  and  Grocer  of  London,  and  a  considerable  merchant  in  that  city;  Alderman 
of  Bishopsgate,  23  May  1750,  (d)  till  discharged  20  June  1769;  was  Sheriff, 
1753-54  ;  Knighted,  at  Kensington,  8  June  1759,  on  the  occasion  of  the  coming  of 
age  of  George,  Prince  of  Wales ;  was  Lord  Mayor,  1760-61,  and  was  cr.  a  Baronet, 
as  above,  22  April  1763.  He  was  Col.  of  the  Green  Regt.  of  the  London  Militia. 
He  m.  firstly  ( — ),  da.  of  Rev.  Charles  Hall,  of  Halsay,  co.  York.(e)  He  m. 
secondly,  Mrs.  Mary  Blew,  of  Chelsea,  Midx.  She  d.  s.p.  8  and  was  hur.  13  Jan. 
1754,  at  St.  Martin's-in-the- Fields.  He  m.  thirdly  (being  then  of  St.  Olave's  Jury, 
London),  8  April  1760,  at  St.  James',  Westm.,  Aunabella,  da.  of  Thomas  Batley, 
of  Hampton  Court,  Midx.,  and  of  Coventry,  by  Bridget,  da.  of  Sir  Wolston  Dixie, 
3d  Baronet  [1660].  He  d.,  in  Jermyn  street,  14  and  was  bur,  21  July  1774,  at  St. 
Martin's-in-the-Fields,  aged  72.  Admon.  14  July  1774.  His  widow  m.  25  Aug. 
1776,  Hugh  Cane,  Lieut-Col.  5th  Dragoon  Guards.  She  d.  at  Winterton,  Berks, 
9  June,  1783. 

C)  The  title  and  property,  worth  £30,000  a  year,  were,  however,  claimed  a  few 
years  after  the  death  of  the  4th  Baronet  by  a  clever  impostor,  styling  himself 
"  Sir  Richard  Htigh  Smyth,  Baronet,"  and  claiming  to  be  s.  and  h.  of  Sir  Hugh 
Smyth,  the  3d  Baronet,  by  Jane  Vandenbergh,  who  was  m.  19  May  1796,  and  who 
d.  in  giving  him  birth,  2  Feb.  1797,  at  Warminster,  Wilts.  His  real  name, 
however,  proved  to  be  John  Provis,  son  of  a  carpenter  at  Warminster.  On  the 
death  of  the  3d  Baronet  in  1824,  his  alleged  father,  he  claimed  to  have  had  the 
right  to  succeed  him.  His  evidence,  supported  by  an  intricate  series  of  perjuries 
and  forged  documents,  was  found  false,  Aug.  1853,  when  he  was  sentenced,  at 
the  Gloucester  Assizes,  to  twenty  years'  transportation.  He  apparently  derived 
much  knowledge  of  the  Smyth  family  by  having  m.  in  1814  one  of  the  domestic 
servants  at  Ashton  Court.  [See  Animal  Reg.  for  1853,  pp.  308-330,  for  an 
elaborate  account  of  this  celebrated  trial,  entitled  "  Smyth  v,  Smyth  and  others."] 

('')  The  estates  devolved  on  Florence,  the  elder  of  his  two  sisters  and  coheirs. 
She  was  b.  27  May  1769;  m.  (as  his  2d  wife),  11  May  1799,  John  Upton,  of 
Ingmire  Hall,  co.  York  (d.  3  Jan.  1832),  took  the  name  of  Smyth  in  1849, 
and  d.  15  July  1852,  aged  83,  being  sue.  by  her  grandson,  John  Henry  Greville 
Upton,  who  accordingly  took  the  name  of  Smyth  in  1852,  and  was  cr.  a  Baronet 
(as  of  Long  Ashton,  Somerset),  25  April  1859,  a  dignity  which  became  extinct  on 
his  death,  27  Sep.  1901. 

(")  See  p.  125,  note  "  a,"  under  "  Lloyd." 

C)  His  election  was  petitioned  against,  on  the  ground  of  his  being  disqualified  by 
not  residing  in  the  city,  but  was  confirmed. 

(<>)  By  her  he  is  said  to  have  had  a  son,  Charles  George  Blakiston,  who  d.  unm. 
and  v.p.,  in  1758.  It  is  possible  that  the  burial  of  "  Margaret  Blaokston,  woman," 
19  Aug.  1725,  at  St.  Martiu's-in-the-Fields  (where  his  2d  wife  and  he  himself  was 
buried),  may  refer  to  this  wife.

(*")  He  was  author  of  some  juvenile  poems. 

(»)  According  to  "  P.  G.  H.  Price  "  [N.  ^  Q.,  5th  S.,  iv,  397],  "  in  1762,  there 
was  a  Banking  firm  in  London  styled  Sir  George  Amyand,  Staples  and  Mercer, 
carrying  on  business  in  Comhill,  near  to  Graoechurch  street.  In  1776,  this  firm 
became  Staples,  Baron  Dimsdale  &  Co.,  50  Comhill,  which  now  [1875]  flourishes 
under  the  style  of  Dimsdale  &  Co."  Either  the  date  "  1762  "  or  the  "  Sir "  is 
apparently,  incorrect,  for  the  Baronetcy  dates  from  1764,  and  no  previous  Knight- 
hood was  apparently  conferred.  In  Price's  London  Bankers  (p.  52)  the  firm  in 
1762  is  described  as  "  Messrs.  Amyand,  Staples  and  Mercer."

with  great  good  sense  though  not  with  brilliancy,"  but  that  "  from  some  unfortu- 
nate circumstances  in  his  private  life,  never  could  obtain  a  patient  or  a  candid 
hearing  in  Parliament."  In  1780  he,  "  like  Wilkes,  refused  to  concur  in  the  vote 
of  thanks  to  Lord  Comwallis,"  on  the  ground  of  its  giving  approbation  to  the 
American  War.  In  1784,  however,  he  had  joined  the  party  of  Pitt.  He  is  thus 
spoken  off  in  The  Bolliad  in  the  lines  which  commiserate  the  trials  of  the  Speaker 
(Charles  Wolfran  Cornewall). 

"  There  Cornewall  sits,  and  ah  !  compelled  by  fate, 
Must  sit  for  ever,  through  the  long  debate, 
Painful  pre-eminence !  he  hears,  'tis  true, 
Fox,  North  and  Burke — but  hears  Sir  Joseph  too."

(b)  Much  of  the  information  in  this  article  is  taken  from  a  memorandum  in  a

(d)  "  Charles  Godfrey  Wolff,  a  Baron  of  the  Holy  Roman  Empire,''  was  cr. 
D.C.L.  by  the  University  of  Oxford,  9  July  1793.  This  was  apparently  a  brother 
of  the  1st  Baronet,  who,  like  him,  had,  possibly,  been  cr.  a  Baron  of  the  Holy 
Roman  Empire.  See  Playfair's  Baronetage  [1811],  but  the  account  there  seems 
inaccurate.  That  Baron  (though  of  the  same  name)  most  certainly  could  not  be 
the  "  Charles  Godfrey  Wolff,  born  at  Narva  in  1701,  and  died  in  1783,  aged 
83,"  who  was  father  of  the  1st  Baronet.

(")  The  cause  of  his  leaving  is  thus  "painfully  adverted"  to  in  some  verses  he 
sent  from  "  Tobago,  Oct.  1814,"  to  Sir  George  Lee,  6th  Baronet  [1660],  from 
whom  he  had  rented  Hartwell  House  : — 

"  When  sudden,  on  one  hapless  day, 
A  calamity  happened  so  grievous,  that  yet 
T'were  painful  to  write,  tho'  I  can  not  forget. 
What  from  Hartwell  then  forced  me  away." 

('')  This  Charles  is  said  to  have  been  s.  of  Capt.  Thomas  Lawrence,  R.N., 
Governor  of  Greenwich  (b.  1680),  Betham's  Baronetage  [1803],  and  "great 
grand-nephew  of  Henry  Lawrence,  the  Lord  President  of  Cromwell's  Council  in 
1653."     [Burke's  Baronetage,  1905]. 

(°)  The  date  of  his  death  is  often  given  as  "  10  Jan.  1811,"  but  it  is  clear  that 
he  was  alive  iu  Oct.  1814  (see  note  """  above),  and  his  death  "  10  Jan.  1815, 
aged  66,"  is  recorded  in  the  Annual  Beg.  of  that  year.

for  the  last  sixteen  years  of  his  life  rendered  him  unable  to  lie  down  in  bed.  It  is 
conjectured,  in  the  Diet.  Nat.  Biog.,  that  this  pain  may  have  "  rendered  him 
irritable,  and  led  to  his  quarrel  with  Keppel."  In  that  work,  however,  there  is 
no  mention  of  this  "desperate  action."  The  wounds,  whether  received  during 
action  or  not,  were,  however,  undoubtedly  caused  by  the  explosion  of  an  arm-chest.

(a)  See  page  168,  note  "e,"  under  "  Coote." 

('')  The  Earl  in  his  will  (9  June  1800)  mentions  no  less  than  twelve  illegitimate 
children  (four  of  whom  were  sons)  the  offspring  of  five  different  mothers.  To 
one  of  these  sons,  Charles  Coote  (afterwards  the  2d  Baronet),  he  leaves  £1,000, 
but  excludes  him  from  the  entail  of  his  estates  in  the  counties  of  Monaghan  and 
Cavan,  which  he  settles  on  his  three  sons  (1)  Charles  Coote,  then  aged  18,  and  a 
Fellow  Commoner  of  Trinity  College,  Dublin,  (2)  Richard  Coote,  then  aged  16, 
and  (3)  Thomas  Coote,  then  aged  12,  successively.  The  descendants  of  this 
Charles  Coote,  who  was  of  Bellamont  Forest,  co.  Cavan  (being  Sheriff  of  that 
county  1807),  became  extinct  on  the  death  s.p.  of  his  last  surviving  son,  Major- 
General  Charles  George  Henry  Coote,  of  Carrickacromin,  co.  Cavan,  who  was 
Sheriff  (as  above)  1880. 

(c)  So  styled  in  the  Earl's  will,  dated  9  June  1800. 

('')  Charles  Coote  (styled  in  the  notS  to  the  Graduati  Gantab.  as  "  Baronettus  ") 
was  M.A.  (Triu.  Coll.),  Cambridge,  1811.  Probably,  however,  the  person 
thus  indicated  was  Sir  Charles  Henry  Coote,  the  9th  Baronet  [I.  1621],  who  was 
b.  Jan.  1792,  and  sue.  to  the  Baronetcy  in  March  1802. 

(')  "  The  Earl  in  his  will  [9  June  1800]  says  of  his  natural  da.  Jane  [who  m. 
Ralph  Dawson,  of  Tanna,  co.  Monaghan]  that  hers  was  the  only  marriage  of  my 
natural  children  as  to  which  I  was  consulted  or  my  approbation  sought  or  obtained. 
So,  possibly,  the  [future]  Baronet's  marriage  was  distasteful  to  his  father,  and 
hence  the  estates  were  not  left  to  him.  These  Baronets  never  had  any  land  "

(^)  In  the  able  account  of  him  in  the  Diet.  Nat.  Biogr.,  some  curious  mistakes 
occur.  He  is  called  "  4th  "  son,  and  it  is  stated  that  "  as  a  lad,  young  Warren 
was  intended  for  the  church,"  and  that  "  the  death  of  his  elder  brother  changing 
his  prospects,  changed  also  his  views,  and  on  24  April  1771  he  was  entered  on 
the  books  of  the  Marlborough  guardship  in  the  Medway  as  an  able  seaman. 
From  this  time  his  residence  at  Cambridge  was  curiously  intermittent."  He, 
however,  never  had  an  elder  brother,  being  born  but  ten  months  after  the 
marriage  (14  Nov.  1752,  at  Risley,  co.  Derby),  of  his  parents,  and  inasmuch  as,  at 
the  age  of  9,  he,  by  his  father's  death,  came  into  considerable  estates  and  a  large 
fortune,  he  is  not  likely  to  have  contemplated  taking  holy  orders,  indeed  in 
early  life  he  was  considered  a  great  "buck"  or  "dandy,"  and  his  predilections 
were  nautical.  Also,  his  mother's  name  was  Bridget  (not  "Anne"),  and  it 
was  his  great  grandfather  (not  his  grandfather),  who  by  marriage  with  Anne 
(not  "  Alice")  Borlase,  brought  the  estates  of  Little  Marlow  and  Medmenham, 
Bucks,  and  of  Stratton  Audley,  Oxon,  into  the  family,  she  being  j'st.  sister  and
